Replacing household appliances: who got a second chance

Another 68,122 households join the program of the Ministry of the Environment and Energy “Ανακυκλώνω – Αλλάζω Συσκευή” (Recycle – replace a household appliance).

As a result, the total number of beneficiaries of the program is 653,772 people. New beneficiaries who are given a second chance to participate in the program, i.e. in the existing list, the runners-up will be informed by SMS sent to their mobile phones.

74% of households that have applied for the program are currently covered by the Ανακυκλώνω – Αλλάζω Συσκευή program, which provides the opportunity to replace old energy-intensive electrical appliances (air conditioners, refrigerators or freezers) with new, more efficient ones.

1. Device grant recipients

  • The government aims to reach 200,000 households with the subsidy, but there will be financial criteria, ie. depending on your income you will receive discount coupon.
  • It is planned to draw up a corresponding scale, and if, for example, 300,000 applications are submitted, other criteria will be applied to weed out 100,000.
  • Priority is expected to be given to vulnerable households, families with disabilities, single-parent families and families with many children.
  • The coupon will allow you to get a discount of up to 50%.

Beneficiaries receive a subsidy of up to 50% for the replacement of up to three devices from the following categories:

  • fridge,
  • air conditioner,
  • freezer.

2. Which devices are NOT subsidized:

  • washing machine,
  • Dishwasher,
  • electric stoves.

Condition for receiving the voucher: the old device you intend to replace must be in working order.
